Back in the day, around 1979 and continuing through the early 80's Mattel Electronics introduced it's version of a video game system, called Intellivision. Looking back I realize how significant and revolutionary this system was when compared to the Atari 2600 and Magnavox's Odyssey II. With its superior graphics and complex controllers, the Intellivision quickly became the next level in home video game system. One of the most ingenious designs of this system was the numeric keypad overlays that came with just about every game. Some were for decoration; others were an intricate part of playing the games. With Mattel's own in-house software company, along with Imagic, Activision, Parker Brothers, and Coleco, Intellivision soon had an impressive game library. They still fell short of the huge Atari catalog, but when comparing the games, especially the same one on both systems there was no comparison as to who was the winner. In my opinion, Intellivision always came out on top. On the following pages I pay tribute to the great INTV, and it's games.
